KiCAD implementation- KeySequence in XML for HIDaxis

Post by mr darcy » Fri Nov 30, 2018 3:19 am

I have mostly got my Navigator working in KiCAD, Zoom and Pan vertical is useable, but I am stuck on Pan Horizontal which will have to be done as a keyboard sequence I think.

What is the syntax for:
Press and release key 1 then
Press and release key 2 then
repeat automatically and proportional to axis input.

I have got:

Code: Select all

        <Axis>
          <Enabled>true</Enabled>
          <Input>
            <ActionID>HIDMultiAxis_Rz</ActionID>
            <Min>0</Min>
            <Max>50</Max>
          </Input>
          <Output>
            <ActionID>KB_Keystroke</ActionID>
            <Scale>1.00</Scale>
            <RepeatStyle>PressAndHold</RepeatStyle>
            <KeyStroke>
              <Key>0</Key>
            </KeyStroke>
          </Output>
        </Axis>
        <Axis>
          <Enabled>true</Enabled>
          <Input>
            <ActionID>HIDMultiAxis_Rz</ActionID>
            <Min>51</Min>
            <Max>350</Max>
          </Input>
          <Output>
            <ActionID>KB_Keystroke</ActionID>
            <RepeatStyle>Auto</RepeatStyle>
            <Sequence>
				<KeyPress>52</KeyPress>
				<KeyRelease>52</KeyRelease>
				<KeyPress>51</KeyPress>
				<KeyRelease>51</KeyRelease>
            <Sequence>
          </Output>
        </Axis>
Have tried various code but unsuccessful.
Many thanks.

Just wondering if you ever got this working? I just started working with KiCAD for an open source project, and I really miss the space mouse support in Altium.
